Sometimes, the most fun we have in the studio is working with people from outside the music business. We've recently worked with two very exciting tech startups, FiftyThree and Hullabulu, lending our sound and music production expertise to help bring their apps and unique content to life. Working directly with creators from different disciplines is an inspiring, exciting process. First up is our recent collaboration with FiftyThree, creators of Paper (named as  2012's App of the Year by Apple). This week sees the launch of their first hardware product, Pencil. Wired is already calling Pencil the "best iPad stylus yet." Working with the tech and creative team at FiftyThree, composer Patrick Cannell, and Threshold Recording Studios NYC mainstay instrumentalists and producers, we helped create a beautiful soundtrack for Pencil's official trailer. Transforming the soundtrack transformed the spot. Though they'd seen the video dozens of times, the new and improved soundtrack instantly changed the spot's impact. One of the video's creators wrote, "Everyone here at FiftyThree is getting goosebumps looking and listening over my shoulder. We're so grateful to have the...

Congrats to Ted Watson and Stargroves! Nashville based label DigSin has signed Stargroves to their growing roster and will be releasing the band's debut album, produced, recorded, and mixed here at Threshold Recording Studios NYC by Jeremy Sklarsky. The band has already received some very positive press - their first  couple of singles (featuring Oscar nominated actress Abigail Breslin) got great write-ups on MTV Buzzworthy and Perez Hilton. Check out their next single, "Hats In The Air" and check back with us for more Stargroves news! ...

Threshold Recording Studios NYC: Perfect for Singers, Songwriters and Bands.  This week the live room at Threshold Recording Studios was transformed into a photo and video studio for upcoming Threshold artist, Dana Lowrey. Over the course of three days, we were able to capture hundreds of still photos, some indoor and green screen coverage for a music video, and shot a few live acoustic covers and original songs on Threshold's 7' Baldwin grand piano. Our white backdrop and lighting turned the place into a perfect photo and video shoot location.  Shooting the acoustic covers and original songs in the live room gave Dana studio quality audio for her videos - a leg up on most of Youtube! This won't be the last you hear from Aussie Dana Lowrey. You can check out her first single on her webpage, produced by Jeremy Sklarsky and Heather Holley.   http://youtu.be/pNarSei8170 And it won't be our last video shoot either!  We have amended the Threshold Recording Studios NYC live room to maintain different backdrops for both photo and video and the ability to completely wrap the...

Earlier this year we did an album with a very creative guitar/cello duo from Austin, TX called Dead Tree Duo. The album, Scaffold, was recently released and just got an outstanding review from the Austin edition of the deli.  This record was more of a "Live" effort and done over the course of just a few days. The band was back in August to do some more produced recording with studio owner and founder James Walsh co-producing with in-house producer and engineer Jeremy Sklarsky. These two new songs will be released as singles and are quite exciting. Stay tuned!...

Incredible session with the great Mark Hudson and artist Madame Mayhem- We couldn't resist asking Mark for a pic since the most popular question when folks heard he was at the studio was - "what color was his hair? Yes, that's the uber talented Dave Eggar in the back:) Threshold Studios Producer Jeremy Sklarsky has since updated his phone to include INSTAGR.AM:) ...

Threshold Recording Studios NYC- Perfect for Singers, Songwriters and Bands! Our studio time with We Are the Woods is coming to a close shortly. It has been an absolute blast having these awesome artists in the studio. The record we are nearing completion is a solid mix of folky acoustic and rocking electric sounds. The music is a whole lot of fun and there were always plenty of healthy snacks and an assortment of teas on hand. Somehow, while geeking out over Harry Potter, the Hunger Games, and other various middle school literary obsessions, we managed to put together a pretty fantastic record:) check the Threshold jukebox for audio shortly! ...

Threshold Recording Studios NYC- Perfect for Singers, Songwriters and Bands! Here are some of the highlights of our recent artist development productions- Mike Billiot Always a pleasure to co-produce with the ├╝ber-talented Heather Holley at Threshold Studios.

Always fun for us to get a chance to pull in some of our favorite players on our productions. Adam Roth is an awesome guitar player and can usually be found playing with Dennis Leary and The Enablers and the Liza Colby Sound. We recently recorded 'F@#$ You' with Dennis and the gang, a great follow up to his classic 'AssH@#$'. :) Cellist Dave Eggar was in again recently working on a great song with artist Mat Brandon. I can't say enough good things about Dave and it's an honor to have a great working relationship with him to add that special touch to our friends and clients songs. Dave Eggar ...

Nicholas James in the Studio OurStage certainly seems to think so. Nicholas' song "Safe In My Arms, produced at Threshold Recording Studios NYC with James Walsh and Jeremy Sklarsky, has made it into two top 10 lists on ourstage.com, including the Subway Fresh Artists National Competition. It is currently #19 on their indie pop charts. Look for bigger things coming from this very talented young singer/songwriter in 2011. Take a listen in the studio jukebox to the right...
